Google+ at WOU!

Google finally decided we were a real, live university instead of (apparently) some sort of evil front organization bent on sneaking underage people into Google plus.  I’d pretty much given up on this so it caught me by surprise when I happened to check again today; looks like this has been turned on for a couple of weeks now.

So now when you’re in your WOU gmail, you should see a “Join Google+” item when you click your address in the Google menu bar, like this:

Click it to go to the Google Profile creation page.  Your name should already be filled in; just choose your gender and uncheck the “Tell other websites my personal information” checkbox, and you’re good to go!

OK, OK, that checkbox isn’t actually called that, but that’s what it amounts to as far as I can tell.

Stay tuned for more about Google+ at WOU!
